We might need a bit more information to help out.

The biggest question you need to answer is: Do you prefer being up close and personal with your killing of mobs (melee)? Or do you prefer to kill them from far away (ranged)?

Once you know the answer to that, you'll be able to narrow it down.

You said you don't like tanking, and mentioned that you didn't particularly like the sage and marauder. Something else to keep in mind is the mirror class for each side:

Jedi Consular = Sith Inquisitor
Jedi Knight = Sith Warrior
Trooper = Bounty Hunter
Smuggler = Imperial Agent

So, the classes will have nearly identical play styles no matter whether you play Empire or Republic side. And every class will get a companion of each type (Ranged DPS, Melee DPS, Melee Tank, Ranged Tank, and Healer). So, the only difference in terms of companion is when you get the companion you'll want to use the most.

A lot of melee players (Warriors/Knights, etc.) will play with a healer to reduce the heal time between fights. Warriors and Knights both get their healer on Balmorra. However, Balmorra is the 3rd planet for Warriors, while it's the 7th planet for Knights. So, you may want to look at when you get your companions (although, that would be spoiling some things for you ahead of time).

In the end, it's about your playstyle. Take a bit to test out a few of the classes on the first planet for each and see what you think.
